The German company has relocated within Wuppertal to a new, larger warehouse and office.

Klaus Baumann, CEO of Compatech, told The Recycler that last year, “we took over the stock and the sales from Sensient for the desktop inks for the whole of Europe”, adding that “we stored round about 30 tonnes of ink. Now we are the exclusive European distributor for Sensient desktop inks. Our old warehouse was too small and not on the current state of technology.

“At the beginning of 2016 we agreed with Embatex AG the distribution of the brand “Emstar” for Germany. For these reasons I decided to move to a new location”. The new site is still in Wuppertal, where Compatech was previously based, and is “only three kilometres from our old site”, according to Baumann, who added that the three-year-old building’s warehouse “has 650 square metres and a height of eight metres”, while the offices have 150 square metres”.

The new location also means Compatech has “space for minimum 650 pallets”, Baumann adding that “now we have plenty of room for further growth in the coming years and the working conditions are very good”. On future plans for expansion, Baumann stated that “now we have to stabilise the new business areas, and then we have to expand them.

“Our product range now consists of: Sensient desktop inks, ink refill supplies, Compatech remanufactured ink cartridges, Compatech rebuilt toner cartridges, Emstar ink cartridges, Emstar rebuilt toner cartridges, OEM inks and toner cartridges, and hardware from Epson, Ricoh and Memjet.

“Another important point of our business is the implementation of customer brands for remanufactured ink cartridges and the rebuilt toner cartridges from Compatech. Three years ago I decided that our main focus will be the inkjet technology. This will also be in the future”.

Compatech now Emstar distributor for Germany

March 11, 2016

compatech logoThe company will now distribute Embatex’ Emstar brand cartridges in Germany.

Digital Imaging (German) reported on the deal, which will see Compatech provide “Emstar brand toner and inks […] from a single source” in Germany to trade customers. The two companies “recently signed a distribution agreement”, and Compatech will “with immediate effect” distribute Embatex’ Emstar products, with the news site noting that the deal is a “good complement to Compatech’s own brand” and products.

Last May, Compatech was named as Sensient’s European distributor for desktop inks, and CompaTech has been distributing Sensient products “aimed at refilling desktop cartridges” in Germany since 2007, having “developed a strong network” there. It also signed an agreement with Memjet two years ago to distribute its machines in Germany, including the C6010 and C6030 MFP.

Embatex meanwhile was acquired by fellow remanufacturer Turbon last October, after the two companies announced in 2014 that they would be partnering in Europe, specifically in terms of research and development as well as toner cartridge remanufacturing. Christian Wernhart continues as CEO of Embatex and there are no plans to combine the two remanufacturing companies’ sales efforts.

March 1, 2012

Highlights include marketing of the EvoJet and Sensient inks.

German distributor Compatech GmbH has celebrated a successful Remanexpo Frankfurt 2012, Europe’s largest aftermarket exhibition, stating “the customer traffic at the booth was remarkable for the four days” and expressing satisfaction at the opportunities the show enabled.

Compatech’s stall was dominated by the presentation of the Lomond EvoJet, which the company will be marketing and distributing. For many, Remanexpo was the first time to see the Memjet technology in action, and few were unimpressed at the 60 colour ppm speed. Klaus Baumann, CEO, also highlighted the refill potential: “As well as low energy consumption, a plus is the refilling of ink cartridges”, which Baumann was eager to stress as core to Compatech’s operations.

“We focus entirely on waste reduction and environmental ideas, and seek to put them into the foreground. We refrain from selling compatible products.”

Compatech also discussed its range of Sensient quality inks at the exhibition, and the expansion of the range of remanufactured cartridges offered. Compatech state that the “environmental aspect should be reflected in the future throughout [its] product range” and commented that the Lomond EvoJet was a perfect fit for this focus.
